Experience with ambulatory anaesthesia in gynaecological patients
Ambulatory surgical care is becoming a common feature in Nigeria. Reports on the role of anaesthesia on outcome of surgery in ambulatory setting are rather scanty. In a 24-month period all patients who had gynaecological operations on ambulatory setting were identified and their hospital records reviewed. Sociodemographic characteristics, intraoperative variables, postoperative outcome and postoperative pain management were studied. A total of 28 patients had anaesthesia for various gynaecological procedures.
